Miniature Medals
« Reply #50 on: July 17, 2011, 12:30:43 »
Hello everyone,

I have searched through the forums and tried all the websites that I have found listed.  I am looking for a place that sells miniature medals, specifically the MMV.  I know it is rarer one, supply doesn't even have the ribbon for it and wasn't able to tell me where to start looking for a miniature. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I also apologize if there is a site that has this as I may have not seen it, but I did go through the majority of them
Thank you again

Try here: Joe Drouin Enterprises. Halfway down the page.

Thank you so much!
I saw that, I just didn't actually use the drop down menu to look, I just assumed it was the full size.  Thank you very much

Thanks for merging all these topics although it looks like my original message got lost in the shuffle? Anyway just wondering if Joe Drouin is still the preferred source for miniatures or if anyone has found a cheaper/faster/better in some way site? (Seeing as posts are 5+ years old it's not impossible) Getting my first gong and trying to minimize the time it takes to have my mess kit up to date.

Joe is still good to go, I've just shopped with him recently for minis.

The only thing that would be faster is if you have a local medal mounting shop who already keeps everything in stock and does rush orders. There was a guy in Pet who did this, and one in Gagetown as well.

I've found that some sellers on EBay have much better shipping rates than Joe Drouin.

I looked at this a little but am concerned about quality. Never know if they are new/used/stolen.

I deal with the RCR kit shop in Pet. They usually have most stuff in stock and I've had stuff in my hands in a week most times. They also have a good website that shows most of  the medals and ribbons.

Shipping was much cheaper than Drouin, even at a much greater distance.

Located a little closer to you maybe...

Lee Medals used to be located in Dartmouth close to Cole Harbour, but relocated to Ontario a few years back.  I had my father's medals redone there and the work was really good.

A few more options for you.  Cheers.

IMO, Guthrie Woods makes the best miniature and full sized replica medals on the market. RCR kit shop sells many of their products, usually identified with "GW" in the item title.

I agree that Guthrie Woods provides the best miniatures and full-size replicas.  Unfortunately, they don't provide ribbon or mount them.  I like to buy the medals from them, then get the ribbon from Joe Drouin and mount them myself.
